On the Horizon

 Hello friends! Today I am sharing a card that I made because I was asked by Stampin' Up! to create a card and video to share with my fellow demonstrators. I felt very honoured to have been asked to do this so I immediately said I would do it. Videos are not my strong point but I was up to the challenge.

I knew I wanted to use the On the Horizon bundle for my card. As soon as I saw this bundle, I knew I had to have it. It reminded me of our camping trips down on the Oregon Coast. That is definitely one of my favourite spots to camp. I love the ocean! 

Here is the card I created:

I started by creating my watercolour tools. I added a few drops of re-inker to my water painter and added water to it. I used a water painter for Sahara Sand ink and another one for Misty Moonlight ink. I painted my inks onto a piece of Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper. I started by painting on the sky/water using the Misty Moonlight filled water painter. I then added the beach/sand using the Sahara Sand filled water painter. I let this dry for quite a while. I could have used my heat tool to dry it faster but I wasn't in a hurry. Once it was completely dry, I stamped the grasses image from the On the Horizon stamp set using Sahara Sand ink. I then stamped the seagulls image using Jet Black Staz On ink. I used my Stamparatus to stamp the seagulls because I knew I would want to stamp it more than once to get a nice dark image. The Stamparatus allows me to do that and make sure that the image stamps in the correct spot every time.

On a scrap piece of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the fence board image using Early Espresso ink. I stamped the image about four times in a row. I then used the fences dies from the bundle to cut these out. I added the fences to either side of my card front using adhesive. I cut out the grasses image using a die from the same bundle. I used a piece of DSP from the New Horizon DSP pack to cut out the grass images. The image actually has a long narrow piece to it as well but I didn't want that part for my card so I simply snipped it off and just used the bushy grass portion. I attached these to the ends of my fences using adhesive.

I matted my watercolour cardstock onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock and then added that to a Basic White thick card base.

I stamped my sentiment using Jet Black Staz On ink on a scrap piece of Basic White cardstock. I fussy cut around the words and added that to my card using dimensionals.

To complete my card, I added some Pebbles Enamel Shapes. I absolutely love these little pebbles! They are so real looking and add just what this card needs to complete it.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed this card. Here is the link to the video if you would like to watch it. Please be kind as videos are not my strong point.

Stay well and keep creating!
